Drudgery


"For most people, even the elite, it is a city of drudgery. You sweat in the hot subway station, then you shiver in the crowded train, then you walk for ten blocks without an umbrella through a pounding summer thunderstorm . . . and you do this with desperation, because you have no other obvious choice. You do it every day."
Eula Biss, Notes from No Man's Land
